"No dog poop left behind"that is the goal of a new website PoopandRun.com
which allows website members to post photos and videos of people that have not scooped their dogs poop.
The new idea is part of the CRAP initiative started by Mr Dog Poop Inc of Tampa Florida that is using dog poop DNA to match discarded dog poop around Tampa with the dog owners.
The project includes volunteers that scoop the poop and return samples to Mr Dog Poop's DNA lab
for analysis. Those DNA profiles are later matched against scooped poop to find a trail of offenses by individual dog owners.
While police departments have used DNA for years this in the first know private company to use dog poop DNA to solve municipal crimes or "poop and runs" as they call it.
Anyone can sign up at poopandrun.cm and report any dog owner for leaving poop behind regardless of the location.
Mr Dog Poop hopes this will bring an end to unscooped dog poop across the country by confronting careless dog owners with the reality that they have been caught and are being called out for it.
How will being a poop and run offender affect someone life? Will having their photo posted online deter them from doing it again?
That all remains to be seen, but one thing is for sure, nothing else has seemed to work, so why not try it?
If you want to help stop dog poop, please report anyone you see leaving their dogs poop behind.
